445 Judge Edith Akinson

Posted By Matthew Abad, Wednesday, December 11, 2013

445, Edith Atkinson

Unfortunately my friends did not go with me when I planted the seeds, so I took pictures of my-self. When first looking up information Edith Atkinson I could not find much besides the information that had been provided. I then realized the two best possible places that can be related to Judge Atkinson was by either planting next to a juvenile center or something to girl scouts. I decided the relation to girl scouts because it was something she stayed involved with her whole life. I believe the scouts of America teach many useful tools that children can carry on to the recall world have these things be attributes.I got permission from Elizabeth Rodriguez to plant it in the park next to it because there was very minimal space for it to be planted on the site of the actual building. If you enter the main entrance of the park it will be in the southwest corner up against a fence that it is right next to the scouts location. I initially though this assignment was very pointless an upset they we had to take apart of someone else’s cause. It just did not register at first. Now after completing this assignment I really have changed my thoughts on what we are doing as a community. It is pretty cool, the thought that everyone is doing this somewhere and it is making Florida (most specifically) a pretty place to be for a cause. I am very glad we ended up having assignments like this. I wish more classes were like this.


The parks location is 15151 NW 82th Ave Miami Lakes, FL 33016
